GIRLS BASKETBALL: Top-ranked Ottoville escapes Minster at 20-0

February 20, 2012

 

MINSTER — Top-ranked Ottoville scored its 20th win of the regular season and validated the Division III Associated Press poll championship it won earlier in the week with a 43-36 over Minster in a match-up of two of the best small-school girls basketball programs in Ohio on Saturday.

 If a run through the Midwest Athletic Conference gauntlet all season hadn’t prepared the Minster girls basketball team enough, the final two weeks put the Wildcats on the court with two of Ohio’s best in non-conference action.

BOYS BASKETBALL: Van Wert too much for Roughriders

February 18, 2012

VAN WERT — Van Wert turned in a strong defensive performance over the final three quarters and  used an offensive outburst in the second quarter keyed by a bench player’s breakout night for a 68-43 win over St. Marys on Friday night.

“I just thought our attention to the little things got better and we were able to capitalize when we made them uncomfortable,” Van Wert head coach Dave Froelich said.

Offensively for the Cougars, a bench player was the catalyst.

BOYS BASKETBALL: Parkway stuns New Bremen for second win of season

February 18, 2012

ROCKFORD — A lay-up by Parkway’s Derek Luth with 25 seconds left proved to be the difference in the Panthers’ stunning win over New Bremen on Friday night.

Parkway picked up only its second win of the season with a 52-51 victory over the Cardinals.

“They were tougher than us,” Cardinals head coach Adam Dougherty said. “That was the difference. They were tougher and competed harder and they wanted it more and we took it. It was that way the entire night. No matter what it was it was like that the entire night.”

February 18, 2012

MINSTER — A big second half lifted St. Henry to a 51-42 victory over fellow Midwest Athletic Conference opponent Minster on Friday night’s Senior Night.

“For as well as we started out the game — we had pretty good ball movement and ball reversal and so forth against their zones, which we addressed the entire week — we just did a rotten job once they switched defenses and that unfortunately carried over into the second half, and they basically just slowed us to a crawl,” said Minster head coach Mike Lee.

BOYS BASKETBALL: Minster tops St. Marys in half-court battle

February 12, 2012

 

MINSTER — Offensive rebounds and easy baskets meant everything in a low-possession, low-shooting percentage contest between Minster and St. Marys on Saturday night.

Minster got more of both.

The Wildcats downed St. Marys 50-42 with a steady infusion of second-chance points and backdoor lay-ups to go with some stingy defense.

“In a game that we knew was going to be tough and low possessions, a 4-0 or a 6-2 run was huge in this game and we had a couple of those in the third quarter,” Minster head coach Mike Lee said.
